Ever wondered how palaeontologists extract fossils from rocks? How dinosaurs are uncovered?
Well now you can learn exactly how scientists do this, and even do so yourself!
Our public laboratory is the only one of its kind in Europe. Situated at the Yorkshire Natural History Museum, the facility has a 12 person capacity, perfect for group bookings. We are suitable for families, friend groups and corporate teambuilding excursions.
Our courses are suitable for everyone, no need for any prior experience or knowledge on fossils.
In this course you will learn how to use an air scribe to extract an ammonite fossil from a rock, and will be the first to see the remains of that animal in over 180 million years! Our laboratory technicians will teach you the techniques that will enable you to independently be able to prepare fossils in the future, even those of dinosaurs.

All individuals between the ages of 12-16 require adult supervision to take part in the experience. Disabled access is limited.
